The bas-relief Apsaras carved into the temple walls of Angkor depict the 44 female spirits of Sanskrit mythology – the apsaras, spirits of clouds and water – and have entranced and intrigued visitors for centuries. Today, a remarkable troupe of performers is telling the stories hidden in the stones through mesmerising dances, rich in symbolism and profoundly moving to witness.

Encounter 12th century Khmer craftsmanship and make off-the-beaten-track discoveries on the outskirts of vibrant Siem Reap
Once a residence for guests of the king, Amansara is a masterpiece of 1960s New Khmer architecture - an unabashedly modern style. A careful and sensitive restoration brought the building back to its former glory, retaining the original single-level layout, curvilinear pool and monochrome minimalism. Gardens and a canopy of mature trees create an introspective atmosphere, continued in the Suites, which open onto private courtyards and ponds. Custom itineraries lead guests intuitively towards less-explored destinations – cycling through crowd-free ruins, meditating amid ancient forest, or cruising to the floating villages of Tonle Sap lake.
